OKLAHOMA CITY- Fire crews in the metro spent the afternoon battling a three-alarm warehouse fire. Just around 1:40 this afternoon at 4200 W. Reno. Beds Direct sells bedroom and living furniture and orthopedic mattresses, which fueled the fired.

Heavy smoke poured from the warehouse as firefighters worked to get it under control.

When first responders arrived on the scene, they had to request for back up.

“About 15 minutes into it – they requested a third alarm and then they requested a few more engines as relief crew on the scene,” said Oklahoma City Deputy Fire Chief Marc Woodward.

Crews were able to prevent the fire from spreading. Most of the damage was confined to the rear section of the Beds Direct warehouse.   

 “We do believe it started from a car in the warehouse,” Woodward said, “a lot of bed springs, lot of bedding, cabinet material that was on fire.”

No firefighters were injured while battling the blaze. Fire crews are still working on a damage estimate.
